Burnaby Rhododendron Festival 2018

This charming annual festival produced by the City of Burnaby in collaboration with the Burnaby Rhododendron & Gardens Society, promotes the long-term sustainable, ecological health of our communities.

We`ll be there with our information booth to highlight native versus invasive species, and amazing the work our volunteers do at Burnaby Lake Regional Park.

Festival highlights include variety entertainment, rovers, mini-workshops, horticultural and nature tours, plant sales, and interactive arts activities. A silent auction, artisan, and pottery sales are always crowd-pleasing favourites at this fun-filled festival!

There will still be some Himalayan Blackberry and other invasive plants to remove as a last clean-up before planting.
